Improved Access to Training in the Emerald Region


Training requires a critical mass to cover costs, etc. How can we bring people together to offer training? A broad consultation on training needs assessments is needed. Is there an opportunity for Memorial to have a coordinator in central Newfoundland to manage/coordinate training opportunities for regions? There are some issues with the provision of training, as participants may not be willing to travel due to costs associated with transportation, lodging, food, etc. Many groups have training programs (College of the North Atlantic, private firms, Government of NL, Memorial University, etc.), but there needs to be more discussion and coordination. Program information needs and training requirements need to be accessible. How can the use of technology address this? Can courses be combined to solve transportation problems?
